POP - Brian Griffin

Brian Griffin – POP
Venue – HIP Gallery

You will need a £5 HIPFest wristband to attend this exhibition. Available at Eventbrite.
In November 2017, Brian Griffin launched his book, “POP”. The book is a comprehensive exploration of the music photography by Brian, shot for album covers, single sleeves, posters, and press. It contains photographs and illustrations of 160 record covers from more than 100 bands and musicians including many which are previously unpublished – including Ian Dury, The Clash, Depeche Mode, Echo, and The Bunnymen, Iggy Pop, Kate Bush, The Specials, Elvis Costello and many more.

Brian Griffin’s “POP” exhibition is a selection of photographs taken from this book.
Brian Griffin first began photographing the music world for STIFF records in the late 1970s and soon became the predominant visual chronicler of New Wave, Post-Punk and the New Romantics.

Working from his studio in Rotherhithe, often on low budgets and before the age of photo-shop, Griffin’s technical naivety resulted in major visual invention.

Marilyn Stafford – Fashion Retrospective Exhibition – From Haute Couture to the Birth of Pret-a-Porter

Venue – Space 6

Marilyn Stafford’s work spans from 1948 – 1980 and covers a variety of subjects including refugees, tribal peoples, international fashion and prominent historical figures. Her portraits include Edith Piaf, Alberto Moravia, Italo Calvino, Lee Marvin, Joanna Lumley, Sir Richard Attenborough among others.

Working as a reportage photographer in a largely male industry, Stafford personally experienced how difficult it was for women to balance career and family, especially when each opportunity was hard won. She recognises that this difficulty still exists for women in the industry today and with the launch of this Award she hopes to help redress the balance.

Ian J. Jackson – ‘House Dance Crossing… Kawasaki Tokyo 2017’
Venue – Space 5

Born Hull 1966
raised on Hessle Rd
lives and works in London

‘House Dance Crossing……..Kawasaki Tokyo 2018’

I have for many years been lucky enough to travel in Japan and experienced much of its rich and deep culture.

In early 2018, I was invited to take pictures at an event in Kawasaki Tokyo by my friend Kumiko Yajima the A&R for House Dancer Hiro who organised it all I have a personal interest in dance music and dancing as I started to follow Northern Soul music as many of us did from Hull in the late 1970’s it has always been a passion to this day.

What was wonderful about this event in Tokyo was the obvious age range and the feeling it was a family day out.

Alcohol was sold, but children as young as six or seven were wandering within the event freely without any fear…… dance music in Japan doesn’t come with the usual negative trappings of drugs and overindulgence unsuitable for youngsters to witness…….. it really was just a good time had by all………. and wow they can dance.

Credit goes to Sachiko Laffey and Kumiko Yajima.

A Stranger In My Mother's Kitchen - Celine Marchbank

Celine Marchbank – A Stranger In My Mother’s Kitchen
Venue – Space 4

You will need a £5 HIPFest wristband to attend this exhibition. Tickets are available through our Eventbrite.

This exhibition will take the viewer on an intimate journey through Celine’s grief, her memories, her Mother’s life and the process of learning about living life as a daughter without a mother.

Celine is currently working on making the work for this exhibition into a book.

Celine Marchbank is a documentary photographer based in London, who is fascinated in capturing the beauty of everyday life. She spends her time between long-term documentary projects, exhibiting work regularly, and undertaking commercial and editorial work.

A1: Britain On The Verge- Peter Dench

Peter Dench – A1: Britain On The Verge
Venue – Space 6

You will need a £5 HIPFest wristband to attend this exhibition. Tickets are available for purchase through our Eventbrite.

Britain is in the midst of change. The divides across the country have been widened by the results of the 2016 vote calling for Brexit and 2017’s general election. There are many questions surrounding the issues of Brexit and the election that Dench wanted to put to the people of the nation.

Is life in Britain about to become better or worse? Will employment opportunities diminish, or thrive? What will happen to the economy? Are the British worried about the future and do the elderly care about it less than the young? Will immigrants in Britain feel unsafe and be forced to leave? How proud do people feel to be British?

The A1, Britain’s longest numbered road was Peter Dench’s connection to the people of Britain. It begins in the South, in the city of London, ending 410 miles later in Edinburgh. He travelled the length photographing the eclectic characters he met on his journey; in truck stops, cafes, temples, homes, businesses, and bars. The A1 provided a route of certainty in a time of tumult, through a nation on the verge.

Peter Dench is a photographer, videographer, presenter, writer, author, and curator.
He has over 20 years experience in the advertising, editorial, corporate, portraiture and video fields of image making.

The River We Once Knew - David Morris

David Morris
Venue – Kardomah 94

Born in East Yorkshire, I was trained in Graphic Design at Hull College of Art.

Hull was UK City of Culture 2017, once voted the Worst Place to Live in England (we would have hated to have come second) the City has bounced back, her people determined to prove that living in Hull is never going to be dull.  My hometown is a personal view of where I grew up.

After graduating I worked for a few years in London Advertising agencies before embarking on a career in teaching Graphic Design and Advertising at Hounslow, Amersham, and Bucks college. It was a job I loved. I couldn’t believe I was being paid to do it – neither could my students.

Having left Bucks College in 2003 I became visiting lecturer to leading colleges in creative advertising in Milan, Amsterdam, and England.
